Title: Fastening body for sheet member

Abstract: A fastening surface body which can mount a sheet-like fastening body to a sheet-like mounting body having various kinds of cross-sectional shapes with no play. The fastening surface body can securely engage a surface fastener of a sheet member to which a female surface fastener is mounted, where the fastening body includes a flat substrate having a surface comprising male engaging elements. The fastening body is structured so as to be fitted and fixed to fitting groove portions of the mounting body so as to bond and fix various kinds of sheet members. Each fitting groove portion of the of the mounting body generally has a C-shaped cross section formed with openings along both end edges of a widthwise direction. The fastening body has at least a protrusion having a height so that that the protrusion contacts a surface of the mounting body when the fastening body is fitted and fixed to the mounting body. The protrusion also extends in parallel to the fitting groove portions at least at a center portion in a widthwise direction on a surface opposite to the surface from which the male engaging elements protrude. Accordingly, it is possible to mount the sheet-like fastening body with no play even when the fastening body is thinner than a height of the opening of the fitting groove portions of the mounting body. Further, the protrusions can support the fastening body in a horizontal state against an external pressing force.
